ON­STAGE THIS WEEK

Pasatiempo - - On stage This Week -

In cel­e­bra­tion of spring, the San­gre de Cristo Cho­rale presents a mu­si­cal pro­gram ti­tled Voices ’n Brass for Santa Fe and Los Alamos au­di­ences this week­end. At 3 p.m. Sun­day, May 9, the en­sem­ble per­forms at

Santa Maria de la Paz Catholic Com­mu­nity (11 Col­lege Drive) in Santa Fe. The day be­fore, at 2 p.m. Satur­day, May 8, Voices ’n Brass vis­its Los Alamos’ First Bap­tist Church (2200 Di­a­mond Drive). The pro­gram in­cludes the world pre­miere of John Michael Luther’s Mass for cho­rus, brass, and per­cus­sion; three early Baroque works for mul­ti­ple choirs and brass; early church mu­sic from Pue­bla, Mex­ico; and two re­cent works for cho­rus and French horn by Paul Basler. Tick­ets, $20, are avail­able at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter, 211 W. San Fran­cisco St., 988-1234. There is no charge for stu­dents un­der 18. Though most peo­ple may best re­mem­ber singer Freda Payne for her 1970 pop hit “Band of Gold,” she’s been per­form­ing on the stage as an ac­tress and mu­si­cal re­vue star for years. Now she’s tour­ing the coun­try with

A Trib­ute to Ella Fitzger­ald. The vo­cal­ist, who died in 1996, is still known as the First Lady of Song, though the la­bel Queen of Scat might work just as well. Among her many hits were ren­di­tions of “A-Tisket, A-Tas­ket,” and “Some­one to Watch Over Me.” AgeNa­tion and Em­power New Mex­ico team up to present the trib­ute at 7:30 p.m. Fri­day, May 7, and Satur­day, May 8, and 2 p.m. Sun­day, May 9, at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter, 211 W. San Fran­cisco St. Tick­ets are $29 to $62. Call 988-1234. Call it hard­core, cac­tus punk, or acid folk, the sound of Meat Pup­pets has in­flu­enced a gen­er­a­tion of post­punkers from Nir­vana to Di­nosaur Jr. Thirty years into their game, Ari­zona broth­ers Cris and Curt Kirk­wood are still tour­ing hard and ragged. Ex­pect to hear cuts from their 2009 al­bum

Sewn To­gether as well as clas­sics like “Lake of Fire” and “Back­wa­ter.” Open­ing for them are the Squash Blos­som Boys, an off-kil­ter Cor­rales quin­tet that blends blue­grass with reg­gae and rock. The bands take the stage at 7:30 p.m.

Thurs­day, May 13, at Santa Fe Brew­ing Com­pany (37 Fire Place, 424-3333). Ticket are $12 in ad­vance from SFBC and the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St., 988-1234) and $15 at the door. As part of SITE Santa Fe’s Arts & Cul­ture se­ries, lo­cal in­stru­men­tal-elec­tron­ica trio

D Num­bers per­forms at SITE (1606 Paseo de Per­alta, 989-1199) at 7 p.m. Fri­day, May 7. Blend­ing live-looped el­e­ments of house, chill, dub­step, funk, am­bi­ent, psychedel­ica, and jazz, D Num­bers puts on a high-en­ergy im­pro­vi­sa­tional show that moves the body and mas­sages the mind. Join­ing them at this all-ages con­cert are elec­tron­ica acts from Ser­bia. Both groups are cur­rently tour­ing as part of the Vice Verse Tour (www.vice­v­erse.org), a cul­tural ex­change be­tween Ser­bia and the United States that merges fea­tures from two elec­tronic-mu­sic and arts fes­ti­vals — Com­mu­nikey (U.S.A.) and Dis-Patch (Ser­bia). There is a $1 sug­gested do­na­tion.
